Our Frailty Clinic
Helping vulnerable patients manage their mobility
The SDSmyhealthcare Frailty MDT Community Clinic is a virtual review. Chaired by a GP, it is attended by a number of specialists including some from BCHC. The clinic provides advice and guidance to establish and manage care plans for referred patients, based on the pooled knowledge of all available MDT members.
The MDT Reviews are currently running monthly as part of a pilot scheme. Our vision is to expand it further across the Federation.
